PHIL 398 Philosophy in Education: An Introduction to Philosophy for Children was the pilot course which introduced philosophy for children to U of S undergraduate students and a grade five/six class at Hugh Cairns VC School in the winter term of 2013.
Philosophy for Children (P4C) introduces children to philosophy through thought experiments, reasoning games, and children’s literature. The Department of Philosophy at the University of Saskatchewan aims to advance P4C in the Saskatoon Public School Division through a new experiential learning course, Phil 267 Philosophy in Education: an Introduction to Philosophy for Children. This course brings undergraduate students together with elementary school children in an public school classroom to explore the big questions.
